Maximalism Interior Design And Is It Suitable For You?
You’re probably familiar with minimalist design that is vastly popular in Singapore. Maximalism is at the other end of the spectrum. It is opulent, colourful, incredibly ornate and capable of creating a truly cosy environment. Design aesthetics aside, the main reason why its not as widely adopted as minimalist design is probably because achieving maximalism right is no simple task. With numerous items and decorative elements fighting for attention, requires a lot of experience and an eye for detail.
So, what exactly is maximalism and can you consider it the right trend for your home? Let’s find out the answers together.
Introduction to Maximalism Interior Design
Maximalist interior design is characterised by a number of principles. It is very colourful, focused on art, personalised, somewhat bohemian and comfortable. Very often, maximalism is luxurious and glamorous. In its very heart, maximalism is eclectic. It effortlessly mixes colours, patterns, textures and an array of materials. Some of these combinations may seem conflicting if you stick to interior design rules but when matched skilfully, they result in visual harmony.
A very simple way to distinguish between minimalism and maximalism. Minimalism embraces only what’s required and functional. Maximalism, on the other hand, is opulent and filled with unexpected elements that don’t always have a specific function. Maximalism celebrates embellishments and ornate interiors without descending into clutter territory.
How to Achieve Maximalism Interior Design
At the forefront of Maximalism design, richness of colour, pattern and texture are cruicial elements. These are probably the three most important elements for achieving that highly ornate and detail-filled look maximalist interiors are recognised for.
Maximalist interior designs embrace colours in all possible combinations. You don’t really need to stick to the rules and if a specific choice pleases your eye, you should definitely go for it. While eclectic things, decorations and pieces of art are all essential, you also need to incorporate a running theme or a cohesive element in the project. This is the one thing that will tie all of the visual diversity together. It could be a pattern, it could be a motif or the use of one material throughout the interior.
Who Is Maximalism Right for?
In general, Maximalism is ideal for those who want to experience a bit of exquisite luxury and comfort in their home. Maximalism will also appeal to the art lovers, to those who enjoy colourful things and elaborate patterns. Unless you like your home to be perfectly ordered and free from non-essential items, you’ll be happy with what maximalism has to bring to the table.
A maximalist interior design can work well with other concepts. Since it’s so eclectic, you can pick and choose the elements you like and execute a hybrid project that’s entirely personalised and capable of offering exactly what you need. Maximalism can work in both small and large Singapore flats. If you’re attempting to decorate and remodel a smaller living space, however, you’ll need to exercise a bit more restraint.
Maximalism interior design can work in just about any home. The trick is to know the space well and to prioritise the most important elements of the interior design remodelling.
